How long does it take to get used to contacts for astigmatism?
Wearing contact lenses for astigmatism is no different from wearing normal contact lenses. The only difference is that they are positioned differently.
Some contact lens wearers may encounter the problem of the lenses rotating out of focus. Wearing toric lenses from a reputable brand such as Johnson & Johnson, Bausch & Lomb or CooperVision should decrease the chances of this happening. Having a consultation with an eye doctor can help you choose a brand of contact lenses best suited to your eyes.
Dryness of the contact lenses or the eyes?
Blurry vision can also be caused if your contacts are dry. Using rewetting drops can help to get rid of blurred vision. At Feel Good Contacts we have a wide selection of rewetting drops designed for a range of lens materials.
Cleaning your contact lenses thoroughly with contact lens solution can also prevent dryness. Daily disposables are a popular choice for those who get dry eyes. These lenses are thrown away at the end of the day and are therefore less likely to dry out as a result of ineffective cleaning.
Having dry eyes can cause blurred vision too and some lenses are better suited for dry eyes. If you have dry eyes consider wearing soft lenses made of a silicon hydrogel material. These lenses are designed to let more oxygen reach the eye, reducing the chances of dryness.
